    I worked at Mayo Clinic part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Some flexibility with schedule. I had a great manager. They work hard to help their employees progress.

    Cons

    Most jobs were replaced by a new medical records system.

    Advice to Management

    Bring back transcriptionists.

    I worked at Mayo Clinic full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    I believe Mayo Clinic itself is a good place to work and has a good message.

    Cons

    The way criticism was shared was often harsh and belittling.

    Advice to Management

    Doesn't matter/department going away for the most part.

    I have been working at Mayo Clinic full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    I have been at Mayo Clinic since the early 2000s, and it's the only major institution I've worked in, though I have had other part time positions elsewhere. I didn't realize how good I had it for the first few years until I started to realize how hard it is to get in to a company like this, especially in economic hard times. I now work in a teleworking position and actually live out of state, even though I started out...

    Cons

    There are often "hiring freezes" in which, in order to save money, when someone leaves, they are not replaced except for in rare circumstances. Our work unit has experienced this several times now, and the work continues to be redistributed, sometimes stretching people beyond their limits, even if temporarily. The past few years, there have been a lot of campaigns to "work differently," meaning finding ways to work more...

    I have been working at Mayo Clinic full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Great benefits including PTO and health insurance, reimbursement account for vision and dental. Great reputation. Great health care. Amazing physicians.

    Cons

    Work life balance is terrible. Management is horrid. Expectations are ridiculous. Nothing matters except the needs of the patient. Forget the needs of yourself. You get a good deal of PTO but good luck using it, especially in the summer.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the minions who get paid crap and do the grunt work.

    Negative Outlook

    I have been working at Mayo Clinic full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Good benefits package and paid Holidays. I enjoyed working from home and being able to flex my schedule to balance work and family.

    Cons

    Being outsourced out of a job. Having a freeze in wages. Working from home can be difficult as well, as it's too easy to forget you're speaking to real people.

    Advice to Management

    When you're more focussed on production, the quality of care goes down and does not fit with the motto the needs of the patient come first, nor does it really reflect the stance that your employees are your most important asset when you choose to cut out an entire department in order to outsource the work.
